As part of the marketing effort, Tom, spent a good part of the day yesterday on Twitter making good on the following twittered offer:
Buy the Here Comes My Baby bundle in iTunes today, tweet me a link to a screenshot, and I'll personally bestow upon you a unique nickname.
Turns out that, unlike the garden variety of nicknames, Tom's names also came with super powers. (see below)
Mickeleh's Take: Personal attention from a recording artist carries a lot of weight. But is this scalable?
Here are some of the names and powers Tom granted to people who bought "Here Comes My Baby."
